The ride is not a race and you will have time to take in the beautiful surroundings and receive a heroes welcome at Brighton where your family and friends can meet you.
We don’t put a detailed route guide on the website as the route is not confirmed until the week before incase of any changes.
From the EDF Energy London Eye start, ride west over Westminster Bridge to Parliament Square and along the Thames to Chelsea Harbour, towards Richmond, Chessington, past Boxhill, then along picturesque country lanes to Newdigate, Warninglid and on - and up - to the spectacular Devil''s Dyke. From there on, it''s sheer heaven..... going downhill to the finish!
From the Kempton Part Start go towards Hampton Court and join up with the main ride as above
From the Brighton start, the ride proceeds towards Shoreham, Steyning, Shipley, Southwater and joins up with the riders from the other starts just east of Horsham.
The 30 mile ride goes from Handcross Park School south of Crawley through Pease Pottage and joins up with the main route.
Please note that the 75 and 60-mile rides do not go past the start of the 30-mile ride and if you are planning on meeting someone there, it is best to meet them at Warninglid School, the next official refreshment stop.
The ride is clearly signposted and fully supported by volunteer marshals and mechanics and there are plenty of free roadside refreshment stops.
Ample parking facilities are available at Kempton Park Racecourse and Handcross School. We also have coaches and lorries to transport you and your bike from North London to the start of the 60 mile start at Kempton Park Racecourse and at the end of the ride from Brighton back to the start of the 60 mile start at Kempton Park Racecourse.
